Jos Houweling

In company of Curator Florian Ebner

The Centre Pompidou is devoting a unique exhibition to the two hundred and thirty-three prints from the famous “700 Centenboek Amsterdam” by Jos Houweling, which entered the Museum’s collections in 2016. Discover, in its entirety, his declaration of love for his hometown, published for the 700th anniversary of Amsterdam in 1975. An artist, typographer, curator and teacher, Houweling raises the simple yet complex and eternal question, what makes a city, what are the elements of an urban structure?
